Grace Bay Beach definitely lived up to it being the "number one beach in the world" in 2022! White sand as fine as flour, the billion-dollar view at the beach, the shore, the turquoise waters so clean and clear it was such a subliminal experience for us first timers! The locals were very friendly and accommodating, so are the other tourists who were there with us enjoying the Christmas holidays. Food and hotel is great! There were no public transportation except for taxis but renting a car is more affordable and wiser to do although we are not used to driving on the left side of the road, it wasn't too hard to learn it. We had so much fun, we are convincing our friends to come with us next time we come back! And yes! we will definitely be back to Grace Bay Beach again and again! :)

Grace Bay is one of the top ten beaches in the world, and this should not be surprising. The sand is fine and white, the sea is turquoise, the waves are small (sheltered by the offshore reef), the crowds are few.

Resorts occupy much of the beach with dedicated chairs and umbrellas, but even with that there is plenty of space for other people. And if you aren't with a resort you can usually pick a sport, or rent chairs and umbrellas for the say. And the resorts don't dominate the skyline like they do elsewhere. They also don't play music or other noise to disturb the quiet. There are lots of different access points, so just pick a spot

I gave it a 4 star because like all good things it’s been developed where there are not too many open spaces anymore.
The beach is large enough that it doesn’t feel crowded and it’s terrific to walk.
Around 10:30a Potcake pups are brought to the beach by tourists in the area area close to the pier near Seven Stars.
You can get your doggy fix while enjoying your walk.

Was on Sand Dollar tour excursion down to that end of island when we witnessed this. Fine boat operators who dump human waste into the local waters from the boats. Terrible that due to cost’s these boat captains resort to doing such things. The guy in blue on the bow of the Caicos Dream Tour (BTW- also the Captain), was filling what looked to be a blue 5 gallon bucket and filling with water from the bay and dumping it into the toilets until they drained from the overflow pipe on sides of the boat. There’s no mistaking the human waste that came out of those ports.

I had read that Grace Bay is rated as perhaps the best beach in the world, and it fully lived up to that billing. Breathtakingly beautiful. The white sand is so soft it feels like powder. The water is super clear, stunningly turquoise blue, and gently warm. The reefs that run along a way out from the beach must break the waves – no waves crash on the beach, it’s just gentle surf licking the sand. There is absolutely no undertow. It is perfect for swimming. We swam, and swam, and swam. We’re from Colorado, so my kids have no natural sense of the dangers that accompany waves. I usually am very cautious and worried with them around the ocean. But, this water was so gentle, I felt very comfortable with them swimming and playing. We spent the most idyllic days on this beach that truly is a wonder of God’s creation.

Family had a great time and I would definitely rate this as one of the best beaches we’ve been to anywhere. Definitely recommend to those that love the beach. A few tips to set expectations. 1. As this is an island everything is really expensive so plan 2X for budgeting (beer $5-$7, glass wine $12-$14, average meal (burger/fries/drink ($25-$30). 2. If you plan to drink consider packing a few things. 3. I was advised to not rent a car and this was a HUGE MISTAKE; the taxis here are insanely expensive (very irritating) and renting a car would have saved several hundred dollars. The only complaint I would have is the transportation. Everything else was great.

This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and is consistently rated near the top. Once you're there you'll see why. But you better hurry! There are new resorts being built and it's starting to get crowded there. When we first visited in 2006 you could walk along the beach maybe with a few other folks. Now it's completely different. Because of great reviews here on trip advisor and social media and travel agencies it's become very popular. We were afraid of this when we first went there. We knew this gem would soon get found out. We just visited again in Feb 2019 and Jan. 2020 and were surprised at the number of people now on the beach. It didn't ruin it for us but maybe consider visiting in off-season. Oh and one more thing- the Provo airport is small and they need to build a bigger one that can accomodate all of the increased traffic. I would not again plan a weekend arrival/departure, it's absolutely insane. You will be standing waiting for your plane if you do.

Grace bay beach as well as the whole Providenciales area is highly over rated in our opinion. We visited many Caribbean islands and for the price of holidays in Provo you can find much better value, beach and location elsewhere. Staff in many resorts were highly reserved, very boring, quiet vibe of the entire area aimed to attract elderly crowd. Beach is always super windy and nothing special compared to neighboring islands with much nicer resorts, services and a fraction of the Provo cost. Would not return unless they start to match their prices according to their true value. Visited January 2020

Grace bay beach is easily accessible with a dedicated parking area. Very clean blue and serene ocean. Many hotels are located around this beach, however it never seemed over crowded. We went parasailing ( the guy who set up our beach chair recommmeded the tour company) and saw a giant sting ray. On the way back from parasailing two dolphins followed our boat and made our day by jumping a few times. Overall we had a great experience.

Okay ladies and gents I have finally experienced for ourselves what it is like Grace Bay Beach, first of all we have visited the following to see which one we can say we LOVE. Bight settlement, Leeward beach, Long bay beach, Sapodilla, Taylor Beach and even the no name beach near our Air BNB that we named ourselves as PRG because the beach did not have a name, very small beach but so beautiful, our go to everyday and we spent an hour or 2 before going to other beaches. (Located Venezian road a little Gem that no one seems to know, every time we go it's just us.

1st: Grace Bay and yes the first impression was WOW!
We were there a good 2-3 hours just swimming and enjoying the crystal clear water.
2nd beach: Sapodilla is beautiful white sand very shallow so I must say if you love to swim like myself this will not be for me. Good for family with children.
3rd: Taylor beach is just as gorgeous fine white sand but very shallow.
4th: Leeward, it feels isolated but actually it is not, also just as beautiful but there are some rocks so not for me.
5th: Long bay same beautiful actually all of them are but this one have lots of seaweeds and waves makes it not as clear.
Finally we went back to Grace Bay for the second time around our impression was WOW! WOW WOW! it just so clean crystal clear water even with the waves the colour of the water did not change and also even there people but it never feel crowded!
The most beautiful white fine sand like powder sugar. Similar to Eagle beach.
